Meanwhile, rumours of Bandaraya’s privatisation and clarification that CIMB’s CEO will only be a visiting fellow in Oxford may help support the market. The US economy grew at a 1.6% annual rate in the 2QCY10. Finally, both the US markets and crude oil price closed higher on Friday after the recent selldown.
